Beijing & the Great Wall Extension

Walk Along the Great Wall, Visit the Forbidden City & See Highlights of Ancient China
3 Days From $1225 (+internal air)
Witness the intersection of China’s storied past and dynamic present on an exploration of Chinese culture and history in Beijing. Walk atop the 2,000-year-old Great Wall as it undulates over the hilly landscape outside the city, and marvel at the vast expanse of stone that protected Chinese dynasties for centuries. Touch Beijing’s storied past on a guided tour of the Forbidden City, a sprawling complex of ancient buildings, and stroll across Tiananmen Square, where demonstrators made history. Visit the Temple of Heaven, an architectural masterpiece where emperors held elaborate prayer ceremonies. And meander through the tree-lined alleyways of Beijing’s centuries-old hutong neighborhoods, where Chinese cultural traditions continue. For a classic Chinese culinary experience, feast on Peking duck at a lively local restaurant.
